After work, when we arrived back home, I hopped in my car and drove to RMU. I parked in the visitor’s lot and went to get a parking pass. I asked the police officer if I had to purchase one or keep getting a visitor’s pass. He asked what I am doing on campus and I told him that I was a graduate student intern, but I was alumni here. He said, who ever is your supervisor should order you a pass, but if he doesn’t we can just write you up one that you can use and keep with you. I smiled and said, “Thank you!” I was going to put that on my list of things to discuss with John when I saw him.
When I walked into the Nicholson building, which is the main building I walked down the middle stairwell. John told me to meet him in the food court. He was going to buy me dinner. I wasn’t expecting it. I had a Paleo bar on the way there. When we met up, he had already ordered his food, so he went back with me to the counter to order mine. I got a Keto Diet friendly cheeseburger with just lettuce, and no fries. The guy behind the counter said, “no fries?” I said, “no thank you.” He said, you are breaking my heart.” I said, “it breaks my mine too.” We all shared a laugh. John was doing the Whole 30s diet there for awhile, and trying to get back into it.
Once he paid for our burgers, we went back to his office and we sat down at the table and ate. We talked out Keto, his play, and then we were finished eating. I took out my notebook and we got to talking about the narrative for the Leadership challenge, and etc. Then we talked about things I could do and get involved in. He gave me a key to the office and told me that I need to come back in on Friday to get a new freedom card, since my old student one won’t work.
At the end of the meeting, he asked me to complete a powerpoint for him for the Homecoming Court. He showed me what last year’s looked like, and when I saw it I thought it looked like an easy thing to replicate, but we will see. He sent all the pictures I would need to my e-mail with the copy that he wanted on the slides.
I sat down at the front desk where his admin sits, and turned on my computer and looked back into his office. I said, “Wait am I going to have a problem getting on wifi here?” he said, “Yeah, you are. I forgot.” I said, “I did too. I will go home and work on this remotely and get it to you before I fall asleep tonight.” He said, “okay, thanks.” I told him I would see him Friday after I got my Freedom card. I walked out of the office and up to the parking lot.
On my way home, I called Drew and told him he said, “oh wow baby.” I said, “yea, I am on my way home now to do this remotely for him.” he said, “sounds good, see you at home.”
When I got home, he had dinner cooking. I was so happy to see him. I sat right down and started working on the Powerpoint for the Homecoming Court. I couldn’t help but notice that they all looked so young. I created the powerpoint and tried to replicate it from last years’.
After the powerpoint, Drew and I packed up the rest of my things. I was heading to Crafton tomorrow morning and taking the bus into work. whew!
